While beach trips are an ingrained part of our culture for summer, they are a recent development compared to our winter activities. Skis were actually invented before the wheel and records of snowmen that date back as early as 1380 A.D. While the ways people enjoy winter have not changed all that much, its fashion is always evolving.

Ski wear developed significantly as well during the 20th century. While the large overcoats were fine for other winter activities, they would obviously be problematic when travelling at high speeds down a slope. Most skiers in the early 20th century wore ski suits that were made of wool, which had the same problems as other wool garments that absorbed water like a sponge and got increasingly heavy as a result. Bauer was not the only one to see the potential for nylon in winter wear, and it was incorporated into ski suits by the 1950s. Ski wear became lighter, thinner and more formfitting over time as other synthetic fabrics were developed, evolving into the skin-tight ski suits of today.

While what we wear to enjoy the winter weather may continue to change, one thing will always remain the same: kids, or those that are just kids-at-heart, will still rush out to play in the snow.
